Title: 1.4 & SEM presets?
Post by: Hakon on September 13, 2012, 02:30:43 pm

After trying in vain for a couple of months I finally succeeded in getting my PC to talk to the Origin + successfully upgraded to 1.4

I was expecting to see new "Oberheim'ish" presets using the new SEM filter++ but I found no new presets at all - did I do a mistake? Could it be that I accidentally made a back-up of the existing presets and then re-loaded them as part of the upgrade procedure?

The reason i want the Oberheim presets is that I bought SEM V, and is has a few outstanding sounds (plus a large numbers of fairly uninteresting ones). However, SEM V will not run on my main sequencer (Sonar 5), only on Sonar XL, which IMHO is a step backwards from 5....the waste of screen space in XL if surprising, i feel as if i am sequencing on my phone :-)

(Tried getting help from Arturia Tech Support, but no reply....these guys make good products but have the lousiest support in the business. )

Anyone know of any Oberheim'ish presets?

Newbie question: does a PC based programmer for the Origin exist? Would be nice as the screen on the device is fairly small and cluttered.

In the archive that contains the 1.4.0 firmware you should find 2 sound banks which contain some presets based on the new modules (the SEM Filter and the VoiceModulator).
